New Delhi: Feb 26, 2014

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) chief N Srinivasan has refused to react to the startling revelations made by Bollywood actor Vindoo Dara Singh in a sting operation conducted by the Zee Media Corp on match-fixing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) tournaments.

“I don’t react on such things,” Srinivasan said when quizzed by a Zee Media reporter.

Meanwhile, the International cricket body – International Cricket Council (ICC) – stated today that IPL match-fixing scandal is BCCI’s internal matter.

“This is BCCI’s internal mater and ICC can’t intervene in it. Whatever action will be taken is by BCCI itself,” the ICC said.

Meanwhile, demands for re-investigation into the IPL match-fixing scandal have grown louder after Vindoo Dara Singh revealed that the entire IPL match-fixing fiasco was actually a tussle between Union Agriculture Minister and NCP chief Sharad Pawar and BCCI president N Srinivasan, while talking exclusively to Zee Media Corp.

On Tuesday, Maharashtra Home Minister RR Patil ordered a re-investigation into the IPL match-fixing scandal after Vindoo, who was also named in the case, made surprising revelations and alleged that some influential people from the sports and politics were involved in betting and match-fixing.

Patil further said that Vindoo should also be interrogated in the matter again.

Former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi also reacted to the report in an SMS sent to the Zee Media and demanded a CBI investigation into the matter. The sacked IPL commissioner also raised questions over the intentions of the  ICC and its Anti Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU), as he wrote, “what are ICC and ACSV [U] are doing in the matter?” (sic)

Delhi Police, which have already interrogated the matter, also stated that the entire case could be re-investigated if required.

Meanwhile, the Mumbai Police have also decided to re-investigate the entire IPL match-fixing matter and confirmed that Vindoo will be interrogated once again.
